In case you wondered if the relationship between Senate leaders and Governor Pat McCrory has improved, the answer would be a resounding no judging by a recent interview of powerful Senate Rules Chair Tom Apodaca in the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Apodaca was asked about the progress in state budget negotiations and blasted the House for “going a little crazy” and then the topic turned to Gov. McCrory.
Will the governor play a role in these negotiations?
“No. The governor doesn’t play much of a role in anything.”
Yikes. Senate leaders not only don’t agree with McCrory, they can’t even bring themselves to take him seriously.
